Any update on this being a possibility? Love Azure migrate for VMWare, but would love to be able to assess a customer's entire environment
Currently there is support available for backing up System State using just the MARS Agent to recover to the same/similar hardware in case of server or software malfunction.
We wanted to understand the scenarios where a full server recovery cannot be achieved using Azure Site Recovery. Please share your feedback so we can review and plan this accordingly.
We have shipped a public preview of integration with AAD DS: https://azure.microsoft.com/blog/azure-active-directory-integration-for-smb-access-now-in-public-preview/
What we have in preview is a first step along a much larger roadmap for integration with AAD/AD for authentication and authorization. As the blog post says, this initial preview is really about Windows cloud VM access to the Azure file share with an AAD identity. Future refreshes to this feature will add non-Windows (Linux, macOS, etc) support, and the ability to mount the Azure file shares on-premises with your AAD identity. You can learn more about this in our Ignite session as well (at around 22:00): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GMzh2M66E9o
We’ll keep you updated on our progress. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to continue posting feedback on this feature below.
